About the OKP
The Orange Knowledge Programme promotes capacity building within organisations in 52 countries by providing training and education through scholarships for professionals.
The overall aim of the OKP is to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organisations. You have to be nominated by your employer to be eligible for the scholarship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of your organisation. After completing your training you return to your original workplace, and this ensures the training is embedded within your organisation.
General information about OKP can be found here.
Who is the OKP for?
The OKP target group consists of professionals who are nationals of, and work and live in, an OKP country. The chances of obtaining an OKP scholarship increase if you live and work in Sub-Saharan Africa and/or if you are a woman.
